I coulda bin a contendah

Wish no more Marlon, this is a Pierce Contender. Halifax Regional Fire & Emergency Service has this recently delivered 2009 unit posted in Sambro, NS, station 63. (Photo taken July 18, 2010)

The Contender is budget price line within the Pierce family of apparatus and is built in Bradenton, FL.

Pierce, based in Appleton WI is owned by Oshkosh, but has absorbed several other concerns over the years, including the Canadian Nova Quintech in 1997.

Engine Company 63 runs this 1500 gpm pumper, with a 1000 gal tank in the rural/suburban Harrietsfield-Sambro Fire Deparement district of the Halifax Regional Municipality.
